. former cray operative, wayne simmons, obviously a lot of confusion today and i'm wondering if a lot of it has to do with so many agencies competing in this -- compete not guilty this investigation. obviously the goal is the word with each other. but sometimes one or the other preempts the other, right? >> i think that used to be the case. i think this is more likely the press trying to preempt one another. this is not the agencies trying to preempt each other. i can tell you unequivocally that the f.b.i. forensics are the very best in the world, hands down, not maybe, not 1 a. not 2 a. they're the best in the world. c.i.a. is involved in this. deu, atf, so they're going to figure this u. i think these kind of little fires get started, turn into big fires, and that's the way it goes. >> neil: what if it's already a sort head fake for us and that they have a suspect apprehended and they're just not telling us right now? >> yeah. yeah. and that's exactly right, neil. your last comment, and why should they? they are under no obligation to tell us anything, nor should they. i would tell
